On today’s show, Nicole reviewed the “most devastating 10 minutes on Hillary Clinton you will ever see” as per Shaun King. Watch for yourself and see if you agree.

When Mika Brzezinski, Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell admit Hillary Clinton is in trouble, you know there’s something there.
In the meantime, we have truly fallen through the rabbit hole, as MSNBC’s Morning Joke is now more watchable than any of their primetime shows. Last night, as far as I can tell (without being able to sit through their shows) it seems that none of them – Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O’Donnell – even mentioned the State Dept IG report on Clinton’s email server!
Maddow did, however, go crazy over the notion that Bernie Sanders (who she claims can never, ever, possibly even hope to win the nomination) just might debate Donald Trump! Note: make sure you have pearls to clutch! (Cue in to the 11:24 mark to see Rachel really lose her shit!)
Today on the show, Vice News’ senior investigative reporter Jason Leopold is the guy responsible for us getting to see Clinton’s emails in the first place, having filed the first FOIA request to get the former Secretary of State’s correspondence before any of us even knew that she used a private email account connected to a server in her home basement! Jason told us the whole story on today’s show and warned that this is far, far from over. Watch this space..
In the first hour, I spoke with the progressive candidate for Congress from NJ’s First Congressional District, Alex Law. Howie Klein raved about Alex during his segment on yesterday’s show, and for good reason. I had a great conversation with Alex this morning. Check out his website, follow him on Twitter, and get involved if you can!
And that’s it for the week. We’re taking Monday off for Memorial Day (and to do some more work to get our new studios into shape). Monday’s stream will be filled with some of my musical interviews from years past… and I’ll be back live Tuesday, 10am Eastern, radio or not!
